nice project :thumbup:

but what's M3 about it other than the S54? did you swap the 3.62 LS diff and what diff/diff ratio you use for the front?

I'm sorry, but an AWD M? I'm not seeing it. I'm impressed you could do it, but sort of disappointed that someone would want to. For what it cost, he could have bought an F150 for driving in the snow...and he probably won't take the M out in the snow anyway.

Why would you want to lose an M by adding AWD to it? Is it just me thinking, 'what was owner thinking'?

Doug I hear what you're saying, in some sense I agree. If BMW were to have made this car in AWD I probably wouldn't like it, because ///m's are supposed to be rwd sports cars, not awd rally cars.

BUT, I have to say since this is a completely custom job, it's completely original and I LOVE IT. And I would TOTALY take this out in a little bit of snow!

What the hell is wrong with you man:facepalm:

If BMW ever made an AWD wagon M E46 I would buy it in a heart beat.

Idk about this, Stock m3 with awd is pointless - Add some HPF turbo sauce and I can see the benefit cause it would not loose traction as easy.

Can you tell us what exactly was done to this car? What transmission was used? Were the diffs changed? Estimated cost and major components needed?
